Cheesy Snack

These extremely simple and easy-as-pie Mini Cheesy Scrolls (Cheesy Buttons) are so more-ish and tasty. My kids (including their school friends) and hubby simply can't stay away from them until they've finished eating the whole lot every time I make them.

You only need four ingredients!
Puff pastry sheets (I use frozen store-bought ones, as puff pastry is too troublesome to make)
Philly's cream cheese
Grated Cheddar Cheese
French Onion Soup Mix to taste (in a packet)

I haven't given you the amount of each ingredient you need as I simply judge by "about this much" and "about that much", it's a word of mouth family kind of recipe. You know what I mean? You just have to do it and you'll know.

First, preheat oven to 220C. Leave the cream cheese out of the fridge to soften. Mix French Onion Soup Mix into the softened cream cheese, this is your chance to taste and try it, yay! Not too salty, not too bland, just right according to how you like it!

Get the puff pastry sheets out of the freezer. Pull one sheet off and put the rest back into the freezer. Cut pastry in halves with a sharp serrated knife when slightly thawed. You can even pop the other half back in the freezer as you work on the following.

Spread cream cheese and French onion soup mix on sheet. Add grated cheese on top. The amount is totally up to you.Roll the sheet to wrap around the filling. Add more cream cheese mix and grated cheese as you keep rolling.Now it's a filled roll.Slice it with your sharp serrated knife.Put on baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper, no greasing needed.Bake in the oven for around 10 minutes or until pastry is golden brown.Serve and enjoy. They are simply irresistable!Of course you can use a bit of a patriotic touch, just for fun!Warning: You'll have to keep making more, coz they'll disappear as soon as they're out of the oven.

These look delicious! I have only done them with cheese and anchovies...something new to try is always good. I love how you have presented them too! Your garden is looking fabulous and your roses are to die for. Pierre de Ronsard is such a rewarding rose. Did you know that there is also a "red" Pierre de Ronsard now?It actually looks more cerise pink than red I think.I don't grow it (yet) but I saw one at the markets and it looks really pretty.Silly me didn't buy it!
Have a great weekend,
Angela.

Love your garden and desert.
Can't wait to see your garden adn roses.
Did you get the email about our car's stolen? Thanks for your prayers, we got our car back in 3 days and before the revial meeting.Thank God He answered our prayers.
We just finished the revival meeting last night. It's the longest one we've ever had. Everyone joined the heaven and hell drama for Scott's church from the 10th and 11th at a park and 12th to 15th healing meeting. 16th -18th healing meeting at our church. The 28 people team went back on the 16th. But before going to the airport, they came to Chungli to help outreach downtown. It's wonderful to work with these people. Our church was blessed and encouraged.
Have a good day.
